British Social Challenge 2019, David Lloyd Aberdeen, Friday, 15. February 2019

The British Social challenge is back in Aberdeen on the 15th, 16th, and 17th of February 2019 at David Lloyd Aberdeen Clubs.
Feedback from last year showed that our inaugural BSC was a huge success, however we’ve made a few changes that we think will make this year one not to miss!
This event is will see 64 players from a range of universities from across Britain compete to win the 2nd British Social Challenge. Players should be at least intermediate standard but players with a rating of 6.2 or below can not enter due to the event mainly being for players who don't always get to play for the loweer ranked team players / social players. (Please contact Kieran if you have any queries about this).
Tickets will cost £25 (not including Eventbrite charge) and will include everything on the itinerary (excluding accommodation)
Teams will be of 4 players this year and must be mixed gender, there is only space for 16 teams so be sure to get your entry in early!
Each University can enter a maximum of 2 teams. Once you have purchased your ticket please email Kieran with your name and the University that you will be playing for. Players should be at least intermediate standard but should not surpass a 6.2 rating - as the event is tailored more to those social players (please contact Kieran about any queries).
Accommodation is available at our student halls for £20 a night per person (contact Kieran for more details).
A professional photographer will be on hand throughout the weekend and the event is supported by Tennis Scotland and The Tennis Student Network.
Friday night:
Pub quiz which will start at approximately 19:30.
Fun Challenges will take place during the evening too.
Points will be up for grabs for each university adding to your overall team score - so not to be missed out on!
Great chance to meet players from other universities before the tennis starts on the Saturday.
Saturday:
Play will start at 14.00 so everyone should arrive by 13.45 at the latest
Davis Cup style ties where each group match will include one singles match and 2 doubles matches.
There will be 4 groups of 4 and we will make sure that each team get at least 3 matches throughout the afternoon.
All group matches will be played on the Saturday and will thereafter decide what draw you will be in on the Sunday.
Whilst not playing we have access to the David Lloyd sports hall where you can play touch tennis, badminton etc. The café down stairs will be open at all times too.
The meal will also be at David Lloyd and will most likely be Curry or Chilli, with drinks being available too. Players will be given time to have showers and get ready for the night out there so that all you need to do is drop your bags off in town and you’re ready.
The night out will start at our sponsor Jam Jar at roughly 21.30 where we have discount cards for £2 drinks (all mixers and some lagers available with the card). We will then head to the newly refurbished Atik Aberdeen where we have free entry.
Sunday:
Play will start at 13.00 and will finish at 16:30 at the latest (including presentation).
The format will change slightly as each match will be two 15 minute doubles matches on this occasion. 
There will be the main Competition Draw for the top 2 finishers in each group from the Saturday and a Plate Draw for the bottom 2 teams.
The draw will be made on the Saturday night and will be seeded depending on who finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd   and 4th in each group.
Each team will still get 3 matches again no matter if they win or lose.
There will be prizes for the overall winners (including quiz scores) and for the winners of both the Sunday Competition and Plate draws.
Any questions then don't hesitate to contact Kieran Matthews at 1505587@
